Leeds to become partner of UK’s prestigious national institute for data science

The work with The Alan Turing Institute will be led by the Leeds Institute for Data Analytics (LIDA) with contributions from researchers and data scientists across the University.

The work in LIDA sheds new light on health and human behaviour and the action needed to tackle a wide range of health, social and environmental problems.

At a time of great change in the world, there is a national imperative to create an innovative data environment in the UK that will sustain the excellence of the research base, increase productivity and transform the way in which public and private sector organisations do business and provide services.

The University and the Institute have a shared commitment to make great leaps in data science research in order to change the world for the better.

Professor Lisa Roberts, Deputy Vice-Chancellor: Research and Innovation said:

"Becoming a university partner of The Alan Turing Institute will provide opportunities for the University’s researchers to work closely with the Institute’s academic, industry and policy partners and undertake the most ambitious, impactful research possible.

“I am confident that The Alan Turing Institute will benefit from LIDA’s interdisciplinary approach and the fantastic engagement we have achieved with national partners across the retail, energy, transport and healthcare sectors.”
